Looking For Sandals That Float?

I’m actually on the hunt for some classy rubber sandals (non-thongs) to get me through the muddy, rainy days of summer.

I’m looking for sandals that are easy to slip on/off — thus no velcro or buckles — and (this is key!) that float! Sandals that float will come in handy when canoeing, hanging out near the water, camping, swimming, etc.

I’ve considered trying those holey, clog-type sandals that stole the show at the Bonnaroo festivities this year, but I can’t find them anywhere!

UPDATE: I found them… they’re called Crocs!

Who knew that I'd be writing about feet for a living?!... Or even that a website devoted solely to feet, shoes, and foot care issues would be successful? But as it turns out, many people have questions and concerns about their feet -- and we do our best to provide the most helpful answers here. Myself and a handful of others who happen to have some rather unique foot issues share our firsthand experiences with everything from ingrown toenails, bunions, calluses and rough feet to trendy shoes and helpful foot modeling tips. When I'm not writing about all things below the ankle, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
